COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hop Knot IPA is made only from American malt and lots of American hops, which produce a big, broad-shouldered, hoppy beer backed up by a character as warm as, well, Mom and apple pie Hop Knot IPA get its peculiar name from the weaving of four different hops added at four separate times during the brewing process. Including our cavernous hop-back, which gets so stuffed with whole leaf hops that we feel genuine guilt for its excess. Hop Knot is an ale that is to be enjoyed with friends, spicy food or any time you need a good hop fix without the harsh bitterness. We hope you enjoy this pioneering beer made in the bold spirit of Americans everywhere.

12 ounce can pours an orangish, amberish color aromas of grapefruit, and pine. Flavor is the same with a huge bitterness at the end from the grapefruit flavors.

Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and sweet malt. Flavor has lots of dank grapefruit and an almost cat pee flavor which makes me think of Simcoe hops, again I get orange, tangerine and pineapple with some sweet malt. The body is on the lighter side of medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty IPA, but feels a little more like an APA since it isnt as hoppy as most IPAs.

Orange nose. This one goes both ways from the start, moving from a nice malt directly to both a light bitterness and orange overtones. Id say its bipolar, but going both ways makes it sound more interesting.

Can from trade with a buddy in Arizona. Pours a clear golden orange color with a perfect head and lacing. Aroma is super musty and perfumy. Smells like wet grass, oil, and light citrus. Taste is just as intense as the aroma. Lots of musty wet grass, fresh hops, and oil. Light citrus in the finish. Fairly thick mouthfeel for an IPA. Seems like a really well made IPA but not my favorite version of the style. Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Hoptimum but a little better.

Can relaxing by the Wigwam pool in the evening. Pretty bold IPA that had a significant amount of resin notes but also some juicy citrus notes. Nice and pleasant. Plus the cans are great for the pool.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Pour is a clear deep amber with a fairly tight white head and nice lacing left behind. Nose is big, lots of juicy tropical fruit hops, some strong coriander spiced citrus, and pine resinous notes with a fairly powerful malt backbone leaning to the sweet side with a doughy presence. Taste is heavily balanced, malty dough and a moderately deep grain bill, citrus and herbal hops, faint bitterness, assertive carbonation with a creamy body.

Dogbrick (12640) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
On draught at Yard House in Scottsdale. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Aurelius (5230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bright grapefruit AIPA aroma. Clear, light gold. Prickly hopping, slightly mineral, very lightly buttery. Medium body. Nice balance, but still a good hoppy beer. On tap, brewpub, Tempe.
Earlier Rating: 7/10/2013 Total Score: 3.8
Cask. Great creamy head, oaky amber, clear beer. Grapefruity aroma, sparkling hops. Mineral, light diacetyl, not hugely different from the standard hop knot. Medium to slightly heavy body. On tap, brewpub.

Bottle. Dark amber with white head. Aroma is mostly caramel and floral. Light citrus. Taste is light to moderate sweet medium bitter. Finish is average. Body is full for an ipa. Not your stereotypical IPA with all the malts. A plus too since its brewed in AZ!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can:   Orange side of golden, little haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Citrusy based hop nose.   Sweet pith and peel, which is uncommon.   Not candied, but sweetened.   Similar on the tongue, a touch of tea or tobacco leaves.   Not real bright, but flavorful in terms of hoppiness without being overly bitter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Clean exit, soft bitterness lingers.   Straight forward and solid.   Not a really sweet fruity or floral example, but still a solid example.
